The Tamale South lawmaker further said the NDC rejects the results of the elections.

We reject the presidential elections as announced by the chair of the Electoral Commission. And we also want to serve notice that the blatant effort even to deny us of a parliamentary majority will be fiercely resisted,” the Tamale South lawmaker said.

Meanwhile, Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has warned former president John Mahama after the Electoral Commission (EC) declared Akufo-Addo as the winner of the 2020 elections.

In the video seen by YEN.com.gh, Kennedy Agyapong is heard saying “we will meet you with force.”

Adding that Mahama should “Try and see.”
